A Very Merry Unbirthday

Our store sends out a birthday coupon to customers on our mailing list. When people redeem the coupon, I often wish them a "Happy Birthday" as they walk away from the register. I think it is a nice change from Haveaniceday or Enjoythesunshine and other robot phrases. Sometimes, and I love this, when I say Happy Birthday, the customer will say "You too." I know it is because they aren't really listening, but I think it's funny.


  1. hahaha! today someone asked me "how are u?" and i answered "how are u?" ...felt like an idiot.

  2. It has been pointed out to me that a person might say "you too" out of habit.
